    The cocktails were decent and the main meals were OK but the Beef Wellington appetizer was inedible and our waitress wasn’t very friendly.

    We ordered kids Mac n cheese. It was the worst I have ever had. Watery and tasteless. We did not eat it. We left and went to Manchester to eat. The food is inedible at FireTower! Do not go there! Do not even give it a try! The other food we ate was horrible. We have had airplane food that tastes better!

    The service was awful. The server didn't even greet us for 10 minutes. When my daughter spilled her drink, no staff member came over to assist us. The kids pasta had butter and sauce which was not really edible.

    Been dining in New York city for 15 years but had to come to Stratton to experience one of the most unpleasant hostesses around. Oh well! Server was very responsive and food was good. However, hostess was the worst to us and others before us. Too bad.

    I was a bit hesitant after reading some the bad reviews. However our experience was the opposite. We made reservations several weeks ahead of time, and were seated immediately. Service was excellent, food was very fresh and had excellent flavor. NYC prices for sure, it wasn’t a bargain, but I wouldn’t hesitate to dine here again.

    Reserved during a 3 day ski holiday. Was expecting an exceptional experience as it was supposed to be best place for dinner on the mountain. Was OK. You are a captive so Prices were high. 40$ for a lasagna that was mediocre at best. No bread offered. With a reservation Was seated in the porcupine room adjacent to the bar. Very noisy. Service was great. But just OK experience overall given food and ambience. Stratton needs a few more places nearby not controlled by the resort

    I have been going to fire tower ever year for 10 plus years on the same weekend every year. The food was absolutely horrible this year . The broccoli was under cooked. The Osco boco lamb was dry and demi glaze was disgusting. The Polenta cake was bland. I told waiter it was not good . She did not seem to care . The bill was expensive for horrible food and service. I did find out the chef that was there in years past is no longer there. Probably won't return. Its ashame I think was a very nice. Hope they figure it out before its to late

    We decided to go to Fire Tower, as it presented itself as the premier restaurant in Stratton. Upon entering for date night, we were placed at a small table next to the waitstaff station. There were plenty of nice tables open near the window. Upon asking for a move, I feel the hostess begrudgingly acquiesced, but she did not engage when I thanked her. Wait staff seemed very casual in their manner, and food runner would consistently reach across members of our party to deliver food, instead of working around the table. If I were at Applebee's, none of this would be an issue, however when you position yourself as a premier establishment, and charge the prices that they were, expectations change. The food was higher quality and very good. I believe the food deserves a better effort from the front of the house. At those prices, you expect a certain level of value across the whole experience.

    I had the lasagna which was $45. It was nothing special. Actually, it was just okay. We were very disappointed with the value and the quality of the food. Service was okay. The waitress failed to ask how the food was, but I'm assuming that's because they get not such good feedback.

    Lori and I have been here before we come here every time we go to Vermont to go skiing. We love the Ahi tuna nachos. normally, we’ll order burgers, but this time we tried the pumpkin raviolis, which were awesome. Can’t wait to come back and eat them again or order something different and see what other surprises they have.

    Food and drinks were excellent. I was a little nervous after reading some of the recent reviews. We had the winter salad with ny strip and fish and chips special. Both excellent and cooked perfect. Waitress recommended excellent drinks. Yes, a little pricey, but that is the same everywhere since covid.

    The food is over priced, overrated and un-appetizing (see picture ) lasagna which was basically a slab cut from a large tray with sauce poured over it. The total (excluding gratuity) was $158 for 2 pasta mains and 2 drinks each , which is more aligned to Boston prices. Definitely will not go back.

    Was a good dinner after a long day of skiing on the mountain! Got the duck with its sauce on the side, glad I did because was EXTREMELY sweet and overpowering. The location convenience is reflected in the prices, was a very average meal and paid like I was eating at a luxury steakhouse. Wasn’t a bad experience but definitely not rushing to go back!

    Great fare and good food. 2.75% added to the bill for credit cards which is a complete damper for a place like this. Please consider adding an extra dollar to our $21 Caesar salad or and order of Bahn Mi Buns (2 buns per order) instead of making me read the fine print on the bill. Otherwise, outstanding choice for dinner on the mountain.

    We keep trying but maybe we should give up. This used to be our favorite restaurant at Stratton. But, ever since it changed hands the food quality has gone down and the prices have rocketed it up. It’s hard to pay $38 for for a small bowl of undercooked, watery pasta. The lasagna was described as crispy but in actuality the noodles were burnt and dry. They used to serve the best warm bread and butter with the your meal. Now you need to pay $20 for 5 small little biscuits. The rest of our meal was fine (burger, steak and chili) but not outstanding and definitely not worth the price tag. The bar continues to be wonderful. Best drinks in town and the bartenders are excellent. The waitstaff and ambience also continues to be great. Sadly, the food is just meh.
